Day 18 – Ugh

F*ck.

Last night was distressing. Had to walk away from the TV and go to bed. Unbelievable.

Woke at 4a and my brain got started on the chaos. Finally fell asleep just before the alarm. It was so hard to get up. Hardest morning in a long time.

Saw a little bit of sun when I first left the house. Tried to catch it on my phone, but colors were very subtle.

About half way through my walk all sun disappeared and it started to rain. Fitting.

Cheers.

Day 17 – Um, cold.

It. Was. Cold.

Pace was off again – this time because I got home and forgot to turn off the workout timer…for about 10 minutes. Whoops!

Note to self – wear earmuffs tomorrow!

Cheers.

Day 16 – First grey day

Well, I had a small argument with myself this morning about even getting out of bed, but the Boy has to be up for eLearning so just going back to sleep wasn’t an option.

At least it wasn’t actively raining.

Today’s Listening: Planes, trains, and automobiles (literally!). Garbage trucks, recycling trucks, birds, dogs, geese, and a little bit of rain.

Cheers.

Day 15 – Humid

Later walk today. Weekend.

Sticky and damp. Yuck. Autumn is moving in. The walk was good though. My pace looks worse than it was, as I stopped to talk with some neighbors along the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 14 – Tech Sucks

Ok, I totally give up. MMW dropped GPS about 0.2 mile in. Fitbit does well enough, it just doesn’t have the nice photo with stats sharing feature. Fitbit does require connection to the phone. At least my Fitbit Versa does. I think I’ve just found my Christmas Wish List item this year. Of COURSE there’s a new Fitbit gadget coming out! A girl can dream. ๐Ÿ˜€

Day 13

Ok, so I got the OOO (Order of Operations) figured out. Let MMW have the GPS first, then FitBit can figure itself out later.

Another beautiful fall morning!

Today’s Listening: Brene Brown’s Unlocking Us podcast with Ibram X. Kendi.

I’ve seen mention of Dr. Kendi’s book quite a bit over the last few months. This was a great intro and overview. I’ve added the book to my Audible Wish List. I was impressed by the combination of logic/data and personal vulnerability shown by Dr. Kendi in the conversation.

Celebrating the 15 year old kiddo today! He was a toddler just yesterday. Where the heck did the time go??

Cheers.

Day 12

Well, my tech still sucks, but I’m taking steps to debug. Tried launching the Walk tracker on my Fitbit first, then MMW, and MMW failed to connect to the GPS. Will test out the reverse order tomorrow. **crosses fingers**

Today’s Listening: Brenรฉ Brown’s Unlocking Us podcast

If anyone who happens upon reading this blog is feeling lethargic or depressed, I can recommend a cool morning walk to clear the brain. Clarity is one of my most desired mental states and this goes a long way!

Cheers.

Days 10 & 11

FYI – Walking is on track, posting about it is not! ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 10

Day 10

Tracker didn’t work. I think there’s a conflict between FitBit and MapMyWalk for using the GPS. *sigh* Can’t we just all get along and share?

This walk was without audiobook accompaniment. Head was too full of noise, and some days any additional input can push me over the edge into full crab. Yeah. Was at risk for this big-time today.


Day 11

Day 11

Today’s Listening: Pete Buttigieg’s podcast, The Deciding Decade – 9/23/20 Episode with Congresswomen Barbara Lee:

Walk went great. So much happiness being out in the cool morning, fresh air, blue sky. <3

Cheers.

Day 08 – Change of Scenery

We went to visit family this weekend, so my AM walk was in an entirely different place. I took the chance to walk around to see old locations that held a lot of memories. Tried not to look like a weirdo filming the neighborhood while I grabbed a few quick shots.

Walking around my hometown was quite a different vibe than in our subdivision. The various animals were a lot less afraid. And the occasional yard had farm machinery. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers!
